If you have found this article, then chances are you’re about to become a Pomeranian parent!
Either that or you’re just totally fantasizing about what you would name a Pomeranian if you had one.
Whatever the reason, we’re just glad you are here and excited to help you find the best name for your Pomeranian, potential Pomeranian, or even imaginary Pomeranian!
But first things first.
Before we dive into our paw-some list of Pomeranian names, let’s talk a bit about some of the best names for dogs and why some names stick better than others for our four-legged friends.
Choosing a Name
There are a number of factors to consider when looking for the best Pomeranian names for your dog.
Like how often you will be repeating this name, if the name is something you are willing and able to say in public, and if the name is something your Pom is going to latch onto.
Here’s the thing.
Most dogs are able to learn their names in as little as two weeks, and your little Pom should be no exception to the rule.
However, if you want your pup to learn his name even faster, some experts suggest sticking with names that have two syllables.
Because names with two syllables like Molly or Milo seem to stick quicker with dogs.
In fact, names with only one syllable like Rex or three or more syllables like Alexandria tend to take dogs a bit longer to learn.
Of course, that shouldn’t deter you from naming your Pomeranian the name of your dreams.
And remember, naming your new Pomeranian is a big part of bonding with him, so take your sweet time, enjoy the process, and have fun!
